Yo-Kai Watch #2

Writer: Eric M. Esquivel
Artist: Tina Franscisco
Colorist: Mae Hao
Letters: Christa Miesner

It’s the present and Snartle seeks his revenge, grudge on Jibanyan the ancestor to Shoguyan. Jibanyan, on the other hand does not know who Snartle is and has no idea why he starts attacking him. Snartle insults Jibanyan, which brings back a horrible memory and the battle ensues. Jibanyan, who is as much as a warrior as Shoguyan, defeats Snartle. But this battle is only the beginning.

This was a fun continuation of the series from the first issue. It had the action and a different story of Jibanyan origins. It was sad to see how Jibanyan had to achieve his Yo-Kai form. It was also funny to see that he trained like Rocky. I would like to see why Snartle has survived and not Shoguyan...

Behind the Scenes: Blister

In the late 90s I began doing some promotional marketing work for local Chicago musicians.  I also ran a popular fansite for (the recently disbanded) Smoking Popes.  The site tracked the projects the various members were involved in, and kept track of the efforts to release the last of their recordings.

Around that time, I became friends with Mike Felumlee, who was previously the drummer for Smoking Popes and at the time was drumming for Alkaline Trio.  More importantly, Mike was owner of Double Zero Records and put out many record releases and promoted some really great bands.

When Mike, and a couple other members of Smoking Popes reunited in 2001 as a Christian band called “Duvall,” I became their webmaster, and as I was sometimes referred to, their “Fifth Beatle...

Kill The Minotaur #1

Athens lost the war to Crete. Now, they pay tribute to King Minos by sacrificing their best citizens to his unearthly labyrinth. Conspirators believe Theseus can be the hero they need to end the mad king’s bloody reign…but no one on this world has ever encountered anything like the savage minotaur.

There is such a large amount of interesting mythological stories to come out of ancient civilizations across the globe. Some are certainly more well known than others, like that of the minotaur for instance. In the first issue of Kill the Minotaur, we begin a new take on this iconic Greek creature.

Following the loss in a war with Crete, Athens must regularly pay tribute by sacrificing citizens to King Minos...
